On the Water: Leech Lake, Minnesota

We’ve rented a pontoon for an afternoon on and in the water.

Our lake tour starts with a glimpse of the birds that hang out on Gull Island.
We see lots of loons along the way too.
A few dark clouds hang low on the horizon, but it is a beautiful day on the water, perfect for cruising the coast or jumping off the boat for a swim.  
 
 
The afternoon comes to an end both too soon and just in time – we pull into the marina under rapidly darkening skies.  
Soon the wind comes up with the approach of a late summer thunderstorm. It is a dramatic end to a lovely lazy day.
